Hi Hubbie,
As a rule the question marks "?" represents a driver issue. The best thing to do is either install the original drivers disk that came with the system board or device.  If these disks can not be located then find a PC with internet access to visit the manufactures web site and get the relevant drivers. Install the chipset drivers first , and then any other drivers as need. If you do install the drivers from the disks supplied  it is advisable to visit the manufactures web page anyway to update any drivers afterwards . Once you have done this there is a nifty little program called DoubleDrive that allows you to back up all your device drivers on you PC and restore them if needed.
